US Bingo Players
US Bingo players play a slightly different variation of the Bingo played in the UK.
- US Bingo
- Spanish Bingo
US Bingo is played with 75 balls, instead of the 90 ball games played across the UK.
Here is a bit more information about the 75-ball game:
- The 75 ball game has a 5×5 grid containing 25 of a possible 75 numbers.
- The grid has 5 rows each, each starting with the letters of the word BINGO.
- Bingo is won on patterns, such as diagonal, striaght up, straight down or coverall.
- As soon as a player fills all the blocks needed to win, the game is won.
In the US, the game is mainly played by churches or charity organisations. Some US Bingo halls rent out their venues to organisations, but generally games are hosted in church halls on a weekly basis.
Prizes for these games are usually smaller, with a bigger prize for the final jackpot game played on the coverall pattern.
Players wanting to play for the big jackpots play at licensed casinos, which are legal in
Spanish Bingo is hugely popular in the United States, Central and South America, and this game can be found in halls from Brazil to the Bronx.
While Spanish speaking halls are becoming increasingly common, many Spanish speaking players play at English speaking halls as well.
Spanish online Bingo is also becoming very popular, with many sites now offering a Spanish game option.
Bingo games in Spanish are also used as an innovative learning tool for language students. This is a fun way for learners of all ages and levels to learn the language, and involves words rather than numbers.
Whatever part of the country or whatever language they speak, US Bingo players all love their 75-ball games.
